sometimes when i try and explain something, people dont understand and i have to repeat myself, my voice is clear, they should understand Your brain works differently, so it's no surprise if the way you verbalize comes out differently. Haven't you yourself heard someone say something and not get it...

My brother is so weird, but not in an Aspie way, in fact I think he's too weird to be Aspie! He's not clever in anything, he's emotionally immature, he doesn't have much of a tone of voice, you can't have a proper conversation with him, and he's not hyperactive at all but he has this strange annoyi...

I just had a strange experience. I just returned from the bank where three little kids ages 1-4 were standing in line with their parents in front of me. It was a long, slow line and the entire time I stood there, all three of those kids were staring at me non-stop, but never looked at anybody else....

Hey Aspies! Does anybody here also find it very hard to keep their thoughts to themselves? Anyone else start really long rants about nothing in particular, changing topics in the middle of your sentence and getting annoyed when others get annoyed by you? Do you also sometimes hate yourself just bec...

Especially, by someone you thought knew, understood and accepted you? Did it come as a shock? (This happened to me several times. I thought people cared about me and they stopped caring. The latest time this happened was with an uncle (he was also a mentor/confidante) a year ago; I told him the dee...

Sometimes when I talk fast, I seem to jumble words (or I says things in ways that are not grammatically correct ) or repeat words in sentences. Other times, I mispronounce words. I've seen the same thing in a girl I know who has Aspergers. (I also had to go to a speech therapist in elementary schoo...

mostly D. I'm very quiet and can socialize on a fairly typical level, so most peers don't mind me. I'm not accepted, but I am by no means rejected. I get on with adults better, though. I got a lot of A/B when I was younger though. i didn't understand that I had to "drop down" to the intellectual le...

Most of the time, how do people act towards you? A). They look at you a lot, seem amused, like you're a spectacle or oddity of some sort, but they seem interested B). Aloof, distant, as if you're scary or not to be trusted C). Treat you like a much younger child D). Very friendly towards you, but y...

Before my Diagnosis, I was already exhausted (I'm 29 and its been a lonely life long struggle); tired all the effort to fix my trouble with social interactions; tired from trying. I got my diagnosis and honestly it helped; everything finally made sense but I just don't want to try anymore. I'm stil...

I know a woman who was victimized by the authorities because of her autism. I do not think your feelings are unfounded. Have you considered carrying some kind of autism awareness card that you could give to someone should you need to? Right, the thing is was that because they knew she was autistic ...

I don't think this has ever been well explained in an article etc but I'll give it a go here. My whole life it felt like any crazy thing could happen to me, I could probably go out without ID and end up deported to Ghana or something. Why? My guess is that it was two things. 1.I didn't realize how ...

It can be hard learning to live with a diagnosis. Hopefully one day you can learn to say "f^'em!", along with anyone else that has a problem with it, and be a good advocate to those that will listen and try to understand. I object to this because I have found I'm treated differently after being ide...

I asked this over at "Random" but nobody seemed interested in replying, so here's what happened. I woke up this morning, was speaking with my mom. I don't speak with my fathers side of my family at all, and she informed me that recently my sister told them I'm autistic. I felt devastated.. It's lik...

Back in 1970, when I was in the second grade in public school, they pulled me out, gave me all these tests and then put me in a private school for kids with problems. In the fifth grade, for whatever reason, they mainstreamed me back into public school. Well that didn't work out well, so in the seco...
